I visited Wilhelma 2weeks back. Its one of the nice place which you can plan to visit in Stuttgart. With Arizona forest indoor space to outdoor area for elephants and other animals. It might take half day to full day to cover whole area.

One of the best zoo and botanical garden in the whole region if not in the country. A good pace to visit when the weather is good and is interesting for children and adults alike. Boasts of a good and healthy collection of animal and birds as well as Moorish architecture. There are even long time passes for people who... More

We arrived around 3.30 pm with the park closing at 5pm so I would suggest arriving much earlier! The 11 euros entry fee is worth it just for the botanical gardens, but we wished we could have looked at more animals in the zoo! The penguins were really lovely though and the grounds are beautiful to walk in.

The Wilhelma Zoo is a very beautiful place: you walk through gardens with wonderful plants; the greenhouses are nice, and most of fences are correct. But the black spots have to be mentioned: the environment for the apes is not good, especially for the indoor part. Old tiles on the wall, no natural light and plastic accessories create a sad...

Visited the zoo on Halloween and kids got in free if they dressed up! Park and zoo was large. Polar bear looked a little sad. Food was good. Very easy to get to.

An absolute delight. Less expensive than we had thought. Entered through glasshouses with exotic plants. Whole place feels like walking through gardens with animals in modern enclosures. Nice little cafe too. We spent whole afternoon there and could have stayed much longer.

They take better care of their animals than other zoos we've seen. You can easily spend a full day there.

I have been to Wilhelma Zoo this Halloween (2016) with friends, it was a great day, the whole zoo was decorated with Halloween stuff, there is a big range of animals and the architecture of the zoo is very beautiful, at some points you feel like walking through a castle :) the restaurant is a bit expensive but the food...
